Dadoes are used everywhere; from case construction to drawer boxes. Learning to set up and use a dado head will go a long way toward expanding your joinery techniques. This class will give you the ins and outs of setting up the dado head and safely making cuts.
A dado head consists of two rim blades, used on the outside of the stack, and chipper blades, which build up the thickness of the dado head. Just in case the chippers don’t get you to the perfect width you need you should also have dado shims on hand. Dado shims run from .002” to .030” thick and will allow you to customize the size of the head for any dado you need.
